5 Crucial Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Buyer’s Agent

You wouldn’t buy a home without carefully researching the neighborhood, school district, or property values. A home is a major financial investment!

One of the biggest mistakes home buyers make is neglecting to do the same amount of research when choosing their buyer’s agent. Would you entrust your largest investment to a real estate agent with little experience?

You can avoid making this common home buying mistake by asking these important questions.

1. What Can You Tell Me About My Favorite Neighborhood?

We have a wealth of knowledge about New Albany’s communities and the public school district. We even have a local directory of health clubs, childcare, parks, and fun things to do near your desired neighborhood.

2. Tell Me About Your Expertise with the Type of Home I Want.

There are important differences between buying an estate home and buying a patio home. Your buyer’s agent should not only be familiar with the type of home you want, but can also show you similar homes that fit your price and size range.

3. What is Your Negotiation Experience?

5. What is Your Current Relationship with Past Clients?
